Hypra has always been once and above all a political project in the noble sense of the word consisting in building up a more balanced society based on solidarity and a sense of justice. Shaping universality in computing through the U.A.S and a service of human proximity is key to us, but our mission goes even beyond :
- It encompasses an advocacy before public authorities to link accessibility with universal design and to make it a transversal pillar of all public policies. See Jean-Philippe MENGUAL speech here (in French).
- It also means building a positive vision of disability by focusing on the notion of "empowerment" defined as a capacity to make the most of each and every singularity and consist in creating enabling conditions so that every one of us can reach its full potential for action.
